My Experience with Burt’s Bees Gud Floral Cherrynova Softening Conditioner:
My go-to shampoo conditioner duo is the L’Occitane Aromachologie repairing shampoo and conditioner. This duo has helped to keep my hair tamed and easy to control. Also, I have been experimenting with a few more of L’Occitane’s shampoo and liking them as well. But with conditioners, I do not experiment much. I picked this Gud conditioner along with the GUD Pearanormal Activity Natural Nourishing Shampoo.
The shampoo was just an average product for me and this conditioner I’m reviewing currently was a below-average product. Let us see why.
To start with I have thick, dry hair which is just below shoulder length. It needs good conditioning no matter how good moisturizing shampoo I use. This conditioner comes in a plastic bottle same as the shampoo with a flip open cap. The product is thick and creamy in texture. It is very thick that it needs some extra effort to get the product out from bottle. It has a floral powdery smell to it. I don’t find it to be to very flattering.
Due to the thick consistency of the product, it spreads easily through the hair. When I use a big tooth comb, it easily coats every hair. I usually leave my conditioner on for 4-5 minutes before washing it off. With this one, I have even left it on for 7-8 minutes. I use lukewarm water to wash off the conditioner. This product washes off pretty easily. There was no slippery feel on the hair after rinsing. My hair is left with a mild floral powdery smell (think of Pond’s powder). Everything is good only so far.
After towel drying my hair, I use a big tooth comb to detangle it. But with this conditioner, I find it difficult to run my comb through my hair. It doesn’t make detangling easy.
After letting my hair to air dry, my hair felt nothing close to super-soft as they claim. It was lacking moisture and felt dry. Also, it looked frizzy. I tried to put this conditioner to work with different shampoos, but in vain. Finally, I had to give up and stop using it to avoid bad hair days.
It did not weigh down my hair (only frizz it up!). Also, it did not make my hair or scalp oily until I wash it next time, which is typically 3-4 days.
Here are the pros and cons of this product:
Pros of Burt’s Bees Gud Floral Cherrynova Softening Conditioner:
- Does not contain harsh chemicals.
- Has natural ingredients and also some organic ingredients.
- Fragrance is good.
- Spreads well on hair.
- Does not weigh down hair.
- Does not make hair or scalp oily.
Cons of Burt’s Bees Gud Floral Cherrynova Softening Conditioner:
- Does not condition dry hair well.
- Left hair feeling dry and frizzy.
This conditioner comes with big claims like leaving hair super soft and manageable. It did nothing like that to my dry hair. This might (?!) work for people who have naturally soft and manageable hair, who need just a little bit of moisture from the conditioner. If you are blessed with such hair, do give it a try. Otherwise, stay away from this.
